System Setup

This content was originally featured on and has been converted to PC Perspective’s website. Some color changes and flaws may appear.

Our system setup for this review is just like our previous motherboard reviews. I used the ATI Radeon 9700 Pro video card, Western Digital 8 MB cache hard drives and Corsair memory. The memory timings were set at 6-2-2 2.0 unless mentioned other wise due to memory instability.
